I guess we can always hope for the best. Though history affords limited encouragement that pop culture will get many details right around the concept of "Silicon Valley," some of whose own local officials demonstrate unawareness of what the phrase fundamentally means, where it arose, who coined it, or (in its original, most-accurate meaning) its industry's unambiguous origin with Shockley Semiconductor (on San Antonio near the Mountain View - Palo Alto border). The first time I saw the phrase spill out of the electronics industry into a mainstream national magazine (in the late 1970s), the magazine located "Silicon Valley" in southern California.

I can't think of anyone better than Mike Judge to produce a show on Silicon Valley! Go see Office Space if you doubt me. It is a very accurate (and hilarious) portrayal of life in Silcon Valley in the late 1990s.
